Here’s the link to the abstract of the first of these reports: (more later) It’s all about a test carried out by a team of scientists on cancer cells.
Cancer cells, you see, grow differently to normal cells, in what the team at Kyushu Uni termed a ‘two-stage cell transformation”, or classic cancer runaway mutational growth.
The test concluded: ERW (Elecrolysed Reduced Water or ionised alkaline water) supplemented with Pt nps (platinum) is a potential new antioxidant against carcinogenesis. The ‘Pt nps’ mentioned in the abstract is platinum, which combines with the water in a water alkalizer, as a result of the ionisation process using the platinum coated titanium ionizing plates.So this is very similar water to what AlkaWay users are receiving every day from their ionisers.
What is significant is that this strong anti-mutation effect was only observed when the water used was made with platinum coated plates, (similar to our water alkalizers).
I have to add that this is still only a petrie dish experiment by the venerable science team at Kyushu University, so it at this stage has no real ‘traction’ in assessing the water for cancer. Let’s hope that more comprehensive tests come soon!
And here’s another one all about the use of alkaline ionised water in conjunction with glutathione. The results were ‘apoptosis’ (death) of human HL-50 leukemia cells but with no cytotoxic (cellular) effect. The scientist’s conclusion was that these results suggest that ERW is an antioxidant, and that ERW, in combination with GSH, has an enhanced apoptosis-inducing (killing) effect on HL-60 cells, which might be mediated through the mitochondria-dependent pathway.
Again, it’s a far cry from full testing.
